SAN DIEGO (CNS) - No threats were found after someone made a malicious claim that a bomb had been planted at Naval Base San Diego forced the closure of part of the station Wednesday morning while military police investigated. 
   
A handwritten note making reference to Pier 5 at the Barrio Logan base prompted the security alert and evacuation of that wharf about 10:30 a.m., Navy spokesman Brian O'Rourke said. Officials also cleared out surrounding sites as a precaution.
   
A search of the area turned up nothing hazardous, and officers gave an all-clear about 1 p.m., O'Rourke said.
   
A Navy spokesman said that there are no suspects related to the threat at this time.
